Get Started with the Intel® oneAPI HPC Toolkit

Follow These Steps for the Intel® oneAPI HPC Toolkit:

  1. Configure Your System
  2. Run a sample project using one of these methods:


The Intel® oneAPI HPC Toolkit is a comprehensive suite of development tools that make it fast and easy to build modern code that gets maximum performance out of the newest Intel® processors. This toolkit enables high performance computing on clusters or individual nodes with flexible options including optimal performance on a CPU or GPU.

Creating code is simplified with the latest techniques in vectorization, multi-threading, multi-node, and memory optimization. Get powerful, consistent programming with 512-bit Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX-512) for Intel® Core™ and Xeon® processors, OpenMP support, plus support for the latest standards and integrated development environments (IDEs). New features include greater scalability and reduced latency with the next-generation Intel® MPI Library. Take advantage of industry leading Priority Support provided by Intel engineers who can help you quickly troubleshoot and accelerate your performance-critical applications for improved business value.

The goal of this Get Started guide is to get you acquainted with the HPC Kit by building a sample project and using this toolkit to optimize your code for the best performance possible.

Included in this toolkit are:

  • Intel® C++ Compiler
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • Intel® MPI Library
  • Intel® Inspector
  • Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector
